BIG SOUTH COnFEREnCE
Longwood University became the 12th member of the Big South Conference on July 1, 2012. Embarking on its 30th year in 2013-14, the Big South Conference has matured into a competitive leader in college athletics, actively pursuing excellence on the field of play and in the classroom. The League’s growing presence as an NCAA Division I athletic conference is evident by notable accomplishments on the national stage, innovative marketing and media partnerships, increased television packages, and quality athletic competition while intentionally fostering the academic, personal, social, athletic and leadership development of each student-athlete. This has evolved into the Conference’s mission of “Developing Leaders Through Athletics.” The Big South Conference was formed on August 21, 1983, when Charleston Southern (then Baptist College) Athletic Director Howard Bagwell and Augusta President George Christenberry began recruiting members into the Big South, receiving initial commitments from Augusta, Charleston Southern, Campbell, Coastal Carolina and Winthrop. One month later, Dr. Edward M. Singleton was selected as the League’s first Commissioner and continued to solicit new members. His efforts led to the additions of Armstrong State, Radford and UNC Asheville, giving the Big South more than the required six members to constitute an official conference. The Big South’s first year of competition was in the Fall of 1984, and in September 1986, the Big South Conference was granted full-fledged NCAA Division I status. During its infancy and prior to securing automatic bids to NCAA Championships, the Big South made early strides in earning at-large berths in several national postseason events, including volleyball, women’s basketball and women’s golf. In 1989, George F. “Buddy” Sasser replaced the retiring Dr. Singleton as Commissioner, and in 1990, the League received its first automatic bid – receiving an automatic qualifier to the NCAA Baseball Championship. Under Sasser’s seven years of leadership, the Conference implemented its public relations and compliance programs, and introduced its first-ever men’s basketball television package, featuring the Big South competing against some of the finest teams in the nation. In August 1996, Kyle B. Kallander replaced Sasser as the League’s third Commissioner, and in his 17 years at the helm of the Big South, Kallander has been instrumental in aggressively promoting the Conference to new heights. The Conference has enjoyed record levels in marketing revenue during his tenure, as he has brought television coverage to Big South women’s basketball, baseball, softball, men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball and women’s lacrosse for the first time in Conference history, as well as increased national television exposure to the League as a whole through aggressive and unique television packages. Under Kallander’s leadership, the Big South developed and initiated its first long-range strategic plan, re-affirming the League’s vision as a distinctive athletic Conference committed to the quality of institutional life through athletic competition. He also spearheaded the efforts to add football as a championship sport, which came to fruition in 2002, and oversaw the additions of men’s and women’s indoor track & field in 1997 and women’s lacrosse in 2013. At the same time, Kallander has solidified Conference membership, as an all-time high 12 member institutions comprise the 30-year old League. Recent additions include High Point, Gardner-Webb, Presbyterian College and Longwood, plus the return of charter member Campbell University. Kallander’s long range vision has also included technological advancements, as the Conference introduced its first live video streaming event in 2005 and has since expanded its video offerings to more than 900 events annually through a partnership with the member institutions, as well as the creation of several online and social media platforms. Since 2000, the Big South Conference has experienced monumental growth and success in nearly every sport. During this time, the Conference has had an individual National Champion six times, has had more than 300 All-Americans, has reached the “Sweet 16” in men’s soccer, women’s basketball and baseball, has received national Top 25 rankings in football, men’s soccer, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, baseball, men’s outdoor track & field, and men’s golf, had an individual selected to play in the NCAA Singles Championship seven times in addition to the first men’s tennis doubles at-large selection, had the first women’s golf program advance to the national finals, had the No. 1 ranked men’s golfer in the country, had the nation’s top scoring men’s basketball team five consecutive years as well as the national men’s basketball scoring leader twice, has received two at-large playoff berths in the Football Championship Subdivision since 2006, has had six NFL Draft picks, and has had two institutions finish in the top 10 in the NCAA Men’s Golf Championships -- including the Conference’s highest-ever team finish in an NCAA event (fifth in 2007). In 2006-07, the Big South was the only Conference nationwide to have an at-large participant in the football playoffs (Coastal Carolina), a team in the Second Round of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament (Winthrop) and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Baseball Regionals (Coastal Carolina). In fact, Coastal Carolina’s baseball program has been a No. 1 seed four times -- including a national seed for the first time in 2010, while the Chanticleers’ FCS playoff berth in 2006 came in just the fifth-year of the Big South’s football existence. The 2009-10 season saw Liberty’s Sam Chelanga win two NCAA National Championships (cross country, 10,000-meter run); Coastal Carolina’s baseball team reach the Super Regionals for the second time in three years as well as being ranked No. 1 in the national RPI and as high as No. 3 in the national polls; and three women’s basketball teams reach the postseason for the first time in Conference history. In 2010-11, Chelanga won two more NCAA National Championships (cross country, outdoor 5,000-meter run), the Big South had its first automatic bid recipient in football (Coastal Carolina), UNC Asheville reached the Second Round of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, Coastal Carolina’s women’s golf team was the first in Conference history to advance to the NCAA Championship out of Regional play, and a League-record 18 baseball players were drafted in the 2011 MLB First-Year Player Draft. In 2011-12, the Big South had a record five individuals selected for the NCAA Men’s Golf Regionals -- the most of any Division I conference, as well as a record 42

All-Americans. This past season, the Big South had 32 student-athletes earn All-America distinction, while another 12 were named Academic All-Americans. The Conference also had two football playoff teams – and two playoff wins -- for the first time, had a women’s basketball team win a postseason game for the first time since 2005, had a League-record four men’s basketball teams selected for postseason play, had two men’s soccer teams reach the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive season, and had two men’s and women’s golf programs selected for NCAA Regional play. Several former Big South student-athletes have also reached national prominence in recent years. Coastal Carolina’s Amber Campbell made the U.S. Olympic Team in 2008 and 2012, and was one of five former Big South athletes to compete in the 2008 Games; High Point’s Tamas Kovacs qualified for the 2012 London Games; VMI’s Reggie Williams reached the NBA with the Golden State Warriors in 2010, UNC Asheville’s Ty Wigginton was named an American League All-Star in 2010, and Coastal Carolina’s Dustin Johnson has won seven PGA Tour events since departing the Big South Conference in 2007. Three former Big South baseball players made their major league debuts in 2012, while Avery Warley became the third Big South women’s basketball player to play in the WNBA two years ago. The Conference’s tagline, “Developing Leaders Through Athletics” was unveiled in 2008-09 in conjunction with the Conference’s 25th Anniversary. The League also honored its heritage with the Top 25 “Best of the Best” moments in League history from 1983-2008, with Liberty University’s 10-year women’s basketball championship run from 1996-2007 being crowned the No. 1 moment in the Big South’s first 25 years. The Conference’s on-field accomplishments have been duplicated in the classroom. For the past four years, nearly 50 percent of Conference’s studentathletes were named to the Big South’s Presidential Honor Roll for maintaining a 3.0 grade-point average for the academic year, and the League has had more than 110 Academic All-Americans in its history. Furthermore, the Big South has recorded double figure totals in NCAA Public Recognition Awards for APR progress the last four years. As part of this year’s 30th anniversary celebration, the League will recognize All-Decade Teams for each sport spanning the Conference’s first three decades of existence.

CHAMPIOnSHIP TRADITIOn - HISTORy OF PROGRAM
The sport of women’s golf made its collegiate debut at Longwood in 1966, founded by Dr. Barbara Smith, who would coach the highly successful program for 26 years (1966-92). During a remarkable nine-year period from 1987-1995, the program won five National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) Division II Tournament Championships (1987-88, 1990, 1993, 1995); finishing as national runners-up four times (1989, 1991-92, 1994). Dr. Smith, along with her 1987 and 1988 NGCA Championship Teams, were inducted into the Longwood Athletics Hall of Fame Class of 2009. Prior to beginning its NCAA Division I Reclassification in 2003-04, Longwood had qualified individuals to 20 consecutive NCAA Championships (Division I, 1984-95; Division II, 1996-2003) in addition to its outstanding team successes. The Lancers have had two former standouts win a total of five individual national titles: Tina Barrett, 1986-87 and Charlaine Coetzee, 199395, while also having the top Division II finisher in the NCAA Division I Championships six times. The most prominent of the many excellent women’s golf standouts at Longwood is Tina Barrett. A four-time All-American (1985-88), she was the top Division II finisher in the 1985, 1986, and 1988 NCAA Championships. As mentioned above, 1987 nGCA Division II national Champions Barrett also claimed two Division II individual titles while finishing second in 1988. She earned national academic honors for three years as well (1986-88). Barrett has gone on to enjoy a successful professional career on the LPGA Tour that is currently in its 20th year. Charlaine Coetzee followed Barrett in gaining national recognition, earning All-America honors for four years as well (1992-95). She claimed three Division II individual titles while finishing fourth in 1992. Coetzee finished in a tie for 34th at the 1994 NCAA Championship, the best finish ever for a Longwood golfer. She also earned multi-year national academic honors for two years (1994-95). Coetzee played professionally on the FUTURES Tour for 10 years (1996-2005). Longwood has 1990 nGCA Division II national Champions won 52 tournaments since 1979 while playing against predominantly Division I competition outside 1988 nGCA Division II national Champions of the five Division II national championships. Twenty-three different Longwood women’s golf standouts have received 46 All-America citations since 1981. Twelve different Lancer women’s golf standouts have received 31 national academic citations since 1986. Obviously, the biggest tournament wins in the program’s 41-year history have been the five NGCA National Championships. The first title team in 1987 included Barrett, Marcia Melone, Gretchen Pugh, Ashley Warren, and Tammy Lohren. Playing in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, the Lancers shot 327-321309--957 to defeat Rollins (Fla.) (972) by 15 strokes, led by Barrett (81-78-79-238). On a side note from 1987, Melone ended Barrett's two-year run as the top Division II finisher at the NCAA Championships when she shot a school record for 72-holes (78-79-74--305) to tie for 47th place -- a record that has stood for 20 years. In 1988, almost the same group, with the addition of Leigh Russell taking Lohren's spot, went to Dubuque, Iowa to win its second-straight NGCA national title. Longwood shot 312-308-322--942 to defeat Troy State (Ala.) (976) by 34 strokes, once again led by Barrett (75-74-77--226).
CHAMPIOnSHIP TRADITIOn - HISTORy OF PROGRAM
The Hall of Fame Class of 2009 team members from these two teams included Tina Barrett, Leslie Oscovitch Gartner, Tammy Lohren, Marcia Melone, Libby Moore, Kim Poirier, Gretchen Pugh, Leigh Russell, and Ashley Warren. Longwood claimed its third NGCA tournament championship in 1990 with a team that featured Warren, a member of three title teams, along with Ami Schonauer, Sherry Evans, Heather Hartwick, and Daphne Sole. The Lancers, ironically, defeated Rollins again by 15 strokes with a team score of 334-317-323--974 to 989 with Schonauer (83-78-77--238) leading the charge in Amherst, Massachusetts. Longwood won its fourth NGCA national title in 1993 during the program’s first year under the direction of former head coach Cindy Ho (1992-2002) who replaced the legendary Dr. Smith. Saving its best show1993 nGCA Division II national Champions ing of the year for when it counted most, the Lancers shot 320-313-312--945 to defeat defending national champion and long-time Division II rival Rollins (984) by 39 strokes in South Hadley, Massachusetts. Longwood finished 1-2-3 in the individual standings as Coetzee shot a 78-70-73--221 to win the first of her three national titles. Team captain Anna Radford was second (78-77-79--234) and Brenda Campbell-Harris was third (80-81-75--236), followed by teammates Anna Holm and Janine Ballow. Coetzee shot a school-record 71-71-70--212 to win the individual title again in 1994, though Longwood was second behind Rollins in the team standings. 1995 nGCA Division II national Champions Longwood won its fifth NGCA National Championship in 1995, defeating Rollins by 16 strokes in New Palestine, Indiana. Coetzee won her third-straight individual national title with a 74-81-77--232 as Longwood finished at 324-328-317--969, playing its best round despite thunderstorms and two rain delays on the final day of the tournament. Rollins (327-326-332--985) trailed by just one stroke after 36 holes, but the Lancers increased their margin by 15 shots on the final day. Coetzee was joined on that 1995 national championship team by Anna Holm, Karla Roberson, Frida Svensson, and Michelle Ziats. Since that unprecedented nine-year period of finishing first or second at the national championships, Longwood made four more appearances at the national tournament from 1998-2003. The highest finish by the Lancers during the five years prior to the Division I Reclassification was a third-place finish in 1998 that produced a school-record team score for 72-holes (312-321-322-322--1277). Longwood was not eligible for any NCAA post-season team or individual competition during the recent four-year transition to Division I (2003-07). That was unfortunate as the program featured two of its finest players ever in Stephanie Hicks (2002-06) and Tiffany Woodyer (2002-05). Hicks capped an outstanding collegiate career with a new school record for season scoring average of 74.90 over 20 rounds in 2005-06, surpassing Barrett’s previous record of 75.8 (1987-88). She also compiled a career scoring average of 77.13, a new school-record at the time and still fourth-best behind current standout Amanda Steinhagen, Kameron Carter (2007-12) and Ariel Witmer. Hicks won four events during her career, and was named the 2005 Division I Independent Co-Player of the Year while also a two-time Division I All-Independent first team selection. Woodyer compiled a 78.30 career scoring average at Longwood which ranks sixth all-time. She earned NGCA Division II All-America second team honors in 2003, and was a first team Division I All-Independent choice in 2005. Longwood entered its official Division I era in September 2007, and the Lancers have continued the outstanding tradition of women’s golf at the institution. Longwood finished 2007-08 with two tournament wins and averaged 311.86. The Lancers finished 2008-09 with two more tournament wins, averaging 312.04. Longwood finished 2009-10 with one tournament win and averaged 308.33. The Lancers finished 2010-11 with one tournament win, averaging 307.50. Longwood finished 2011-12 with one tournament win, two runners-up finishes and a third-place finish among eight top-10 team efforts overall with 18 top-20 individual finishes, averaging a new school-record 305.33. The Lancers did not win a tournament during 2012-13, but did have four top-five finishes, including third at the Big South Championships, among seven top-10 team efforts overall and averaged 308.48.

Dr. Barbara Smith is the retired founder and 26-year head coach of the nationally prominent Longwood women’s golf program, earning 137 career victories. She guided the program to three NGCA Division II National Championships (1987, 1988, 1990), and four NGCA national runner-up finishes (1984, 1989, 1991, 1992). Dr. Smith also led the team to a second-place effort at the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) Division II Championships in 1981, after winning six AIAW State titles (1970-72, 1976-77, 1979) as well.

GOlF COURSE FACIlITIES
The longwood Golf Club, one of just three college-owned golf course facilities in Virginia, is home to the women’s golf program. It was previously the site of the Tina Barrett Invitational from 1991-2000, hosted by the women’s team and named for the four-time All-American and 19-year LPGA Tour player. Located just steps from the President’s house one mile from our campus, the Longwood Golf Club includes a challenging nine-hole layout with four sets of tees, two practice greens with practice sand bunkers, a practice range, and a golf shop. Longwood also enjoys practice and playing privileges at The Manor Resort Golf Club located just south of Farmville and only minutes from campus. It is a one-of-a-kind golf course in a spectacular setting and features bent grass greens, fairways, and tees. Chosen as one of the "Best New Golf Courses of 2007" by Golf Digest Magazine (#4). Longwood hosted the most recent Tina Barrett Invitational March 2829, 2011, posting a tournament record 36-hole score of 291-297--588 while finishing in first place among five teams. The Lancers were 13 shots ahead of runners-up Old Dominion University (601) while Amanda Steinhagen took individual medalist honors in the field of 28 with her tournament record fourunder par 69-71--140 for her first collegiate victory. Steinhagen's two-round score of 140 is a collegiate-best as well as a new school record for 36 holes. She was followed by Hannah Pierce (73-73--146, 3rd), Ariel Witmer (72-76-148, 5th) and Ha Lee (77-77--154, 10th), along with Brooke Mallory (78-77-155, t-11th). Longwood established new tournament team records for 18 (291) and 36 (588) holes, while Steinhagen set new event records for both 18 (69) and 36 (140) holes, as well, during the 2011 event. The tournament has not taken place during each of the past three years.
The Manor Resort Golf Club opened in June 2006 to rave reviews and is located just minutes from campus.
lOnGWOOD UnIVERSITy With a legacy of learning dating back more than 170 years, Longwood University has developed a meaningful learning environment that extends far beyond the classroom. Founded in 1839 as the Farmville Female Seminary Association, the school was a pioneer first in private and later in public education. The state of Virginia acquired the school in 1884 and renamed it as the Normal School, the first state institution of higher learning for women in Virginia. Over the years, the school expanded its curricula and had a succession of names, becoming Longwood College in 1949 and fully coeducational in 1976. On April 24, 2002, history was again made at Longwood when Gov. Mark Warner signed legislation that designated Longwood as a university, effective July 1, 2002.
The legacy that began in 1839 continues today as Longwood University offers more than 100 majors, minors and concentrations to more than 4,800 students. Given its historical roots, Longwood University enjoys an enviable reputation for teacher preparation. But the excellence has expanded throughout the university with strong programs in the liberal arts and sciences, business, and professional and pre-professional programs. Today the coeducational, comprehensive state university comprises four separate colleges: the Cook-Cole College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Business and Economics, the College of Education and Human Services and the College of Graduate and Professional Studies. The graduate college offers programs in education, communication sciences and disorders, English and sociology, as well as an MBA degree. Under the leadership of Interim President Marge Connelly, Longwood is committed to developing citizen leaders and provides a meaningful learning environment. Students get an excellent grounding in theory then translate their newly acquired knowledge into action by doing research, internships, fieldwork and community service. Recognizing the value of experiential learning, Longwood is one of the few universities in the country to require all students to complete an internship or similar learning experience before graduation. Additionally, Longwood was the first institution in Virginia to require that every freshman have a laptop computer. Technology is integrated throughout the learning process—an essential element for preparing the leaders of tomorrow. The Greenwood Library supports Longwood’s mission of developing citizen leaders through a comprehensive array of services and resources. It is a learning-centered environment that fosters intellectual exchange, scholarly communication, cultural enrichment, lifelong information literacy and creative expression. In addition, the library provides more than 343,000 titles, 8,000 DVDs, 5,100 CDs, 900 print journal subscriptions, and 160 electronic databases with access to more than 51,000 full-text electronic journals. The library also provides integrated technol-
ogy for information retrieval from libraries throughout the world. This state-of-the-art facility is named in honor of Longwood’s 22nd president, Dr. Janet Daly Greenwood who served from 1981 to 1987. Longwood provides a range of business services to the region and state through the Longwood Small Business Development Center, while the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts serves as an important and innovative study center and cultural resource for the Commonwealth of Virginia. Longwood University also has a tremendous economic and cultural impact on Farmville and the surrounding communities. A study conducted by the Longwood Small Business Development Center estimates that university employees, students and visitors spent more than $90 million in 2007—with 66 percent of that amount being spent in Farmville and the eight surrounding counties. The Longwood campus, located in the heart of historic Farmville, Va., provides excellent facilities while reflecting the charm, beauty and character associated with its long heritage. The campus community was enhanced with the opening of Brock Commons, a beautiful pedestrian promenade that provides a central focal point for the Longwood campus while eliminating traffic congestion and safety hazards. Fountains, walkways, outdoor sculpture and beautiful landscaping contribute to Brock Commons, creating a parklike atmosphere for students, faculty, staff and the public. Longwood’s signature building, Ruffner Hall, was rededicated on April 23, 2005, and replicates the university’s most beloved building and its beautiful rotunda, dating to the 1880s, which burned on April 24, 2001, while undergoing a $12 million renovation. The original eight paintings on the interior of the rotunda dome, created in 1905 by the Italian-born artist Eugene D. Monfalcone of Richmond, have been returned to the dome following an extensive restoration that was under way prior to the fire. The historic Joan of Arc statue, known affectionately as “Joanie on the Stony,” was also restored recently and returned to its place of honor on the main floor beneath the rotunda. The larger-than-life sculpture is a reproduction of the famous 1870 original created by French sculptor Henri-Michel-Antoine Chapu. The statue was a gift of the Class of 1914 and symbolizes Joan of Arc as the patron saint of Longwood. Ruffner Hall was reconstructed in the classic style based on the original blueprints and drawings from the state archives in Richmond. The 83,143-square-foot building houses 22 classrooms, four academic departments, the offices of the Vice President for Academic Affairs and the deans of the College of Graduate and Professional Studies and the Cook-Cole College of Arts and Sciences, named for benefactors Dr. John R. Cook (Class of 1952) and Dr. Waverly M. Cole. Between Ruffner Hall and Blackwell Hall, a sunlit hallway forms the Cole Gallery, which features a collection of more than 500 pieces of 19th-century Bohemian glass, Meissen porcelain and English pottery donated to the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts by Dr. Cole. Standing guard over this rare collection of decorative arts, with her sword held high, is the recently renovated equestrian statue of Joan of Arc, or “Joanie on the Pony,” by Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington. Adjoining the Cole Gallery is Blackwell Hall, opened in 1920 as the campus dining hall. This historic facility, which survived the Great Fire of 2001, was named in the mid-1970s in memory of Dr. Herbert R. Blackwell, professor of English and dean of the college. Today, following a recent renovation and conversion, Blackwell Hall has a new role providing space for social, cultural and educational events for the campus and community. Along with Blackwell Hall, the extensive renovation included the adjacent Virginia and Prince Edward meeting rooms. The Chichester Science Center opened Dec. 6, 2005. The 70,822square-foot facility includes 23 classrooms and laboratories, 47 faculty offices and additional research space for both undergraduate and graduate research projects. The building, which was named in 2007 in honor of John H. and Karen Williams Chichester (Class of 1974), features a state-
of-the-art, climate-controlled environment with safety ventilation systems and hazardous materials safeguards, as well as a high-tech infrastructure for classrooms, laboratories and distance-learning facilities. A greenhouse and herbarium, housing the world’s largest collection of Virginia plant specimens, are located on the roof. More recently, a multifaceted Health and Fitness Center opened in August 2007. Located on Main Street adjacent to Frazer Residence Hall, the 74,683-square-foot, 2-1/2-story facility features a wide range of amenities including an indoor track, basketball and racquetball courts, a climbing wall, workout rooms, juice bar, and the latest weight, exercise and training equipment. The building received a Gold Certification Rating in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) from the U.S. Green Building Council. One of the more popular buildings on campus is the two-story, 60,000-square-foot Dorrill Dining Hall located on Brock Commons across from the Lankford Student Union. Named in honor of Dr. William Franklin Dorrill, Longwood’s 23rd president, this multipurpose facility with its curved, colonnaded portico overlooking Iler Field was the first on campus to utilize geothermal heating and cooling. The flexible interior design provides space for banquets, meetings and special events along with a Grand Dining Room seating 500 and an arcade seating an additional 700. In fall 2009, the Center for Communication Studies and Theatre opened a new era for one of Longwood’s fastest-growing programs. The three-story, 41,983-square-foot building is home to the Department of Communication Studies and Theatre and Longwood Theatre productions, and is situated between the south end of Bedford Hall and Franklin Street across from the Hull Education Center. The new building features a highly flexible 174-seat “black box” theater, in which the seats and stage can be moved around. A studio theater, of about 80 seats and also flexible, will be used for student productions. There is also a scene shop, a costume shop and a drafting lab. The center also houses the Jack Blanton Gallery, which features more than 160 of the 230 pieces of artwork donated by Jack Blanton to the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts. More than 1,300 students reside in three campus-managed apartment communities: Longwood Landings at Mid-Town Square, Longwood Village and Lancer Village. Some of the amenities and features of the apartments are private bedrooms (some with private baths), full kitchens (most with dishwashers), washer-dryer units, large living areas, high-speed Internet and cable television. Two of the three communities have fitness rooms, and one has a swimming pool and a game room. On campus, Wheeler and Cox Halls recently reopened following complete renovations. These residence halls now include elevators, air conditioning, bathrooms with ceramic tile and new fixtures, contemporary study rooms with modern amenities, and common areas with outside terraces. Longwood Landings at Mid-Town Square, which opened in August 2006, is a residential village that includes four four-story buildings with the top three floors dedicated to student housing and the ground floor devoted to leased retail space. Longwood students occupy 96 four-bedroom and 24 single-room apartments. Retailers include Barnes & Noble, which operates Longwood’s bookstore and includes a Starbucks Café, and a Chick-fil-A and Moe’s Southwest Grill operated by Longwood Dining Services (ARAMARK). Willett Hall, named for former Longwood President Henry I. Willett Jr., is a health, physical education and recreation complex located on Brock Commons. It has a gymnasium with 1,807 seats; a complete weight-training laboratory; a 25-meter pool with a 1-meter board, underwater lighting and observation window; a 350-seat natatorium; a modern dance studio with a floating floor and staging capacity; and one of the state’s best-equipped laboratories for the study of human performance as it relates to exercise, sports, health and the arts. A 3,000-square-foot addition to Willett Hall houses a sports medicine/rehabilitation facility for the
health, recreation and kinesiology programs. Not far from campus students can enjoy the facilities at Longwood Estate, which features a complex of athletic fields for field hockey, lacrosse and soccer, along with a nine-hole golf course. The president’s home, Longwood House, is situated on the estate.
Longwood University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS: 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033; 404-679-4500) to award bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Other accreditations include the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), the Virginia State Board of Education, the National Association of Schools of Theatre and the National Association of Schools of Music. Specific program endorsements include the undergraduate social work program that is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education; the undergraduate therapeutic recreation program that is accredited by the National Recreation and Park Association; the athletic training program that is accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CCATE); and the undergraduate and graduate business administration programs that are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB- International). For the 15th straight year, Longwood University is ranked among the best in the 2013 U.S. News & World Report survey. The new USN&WR “America’s Best Colleges” report, released in September 2012, ranks Longwood 11th in the category “Top Public UniversitiesMaster’s” in the South. Among all Southern Universities-Master’s (public and private) Longwood remains within the top tier at No. 33. Additionally, Longwood is one of only 138 schools in the Southeast selected as a “Best in the Southeast” in the Princeton Review’s 2014 Best Colleges: Region by Region listings. The Princeton Review also named Longwood one of the nation's “Best Value” colleges and universities, including Longwood as one of 75 public institutions to be featured in its book, "The Best Value Colleges: 2013 Edition." And, for the fourth consecutive year, Longwood University is included as one of the 650 best colleges in the United States in the Forbes 2013 list of America’s Best Colleges.
THE FARMVIllE AREA / COMMOnWEAlTH OF VIRGInIA
THE FARMVIllE AREA Longwood University is located in historic Farmville, Virginia -- 65 miles west of Richmond, 48 miles east of Lynchburg, and 60 miles south of Charlottesville -- the Heart of Virginia. The Town of Farmville has a population of approximately 6,800. The Farmville Area is comprised of the town of Farmville, along with the counties of Prince Edward and Cumberland. This area serves as a retail hub and commercial activity center for eight counties of Southside Virginia and has a service market of more than 100,000 people. Education is a dominant factor in the area, with three outstanding colleges offering educational and training opportunities. In addition to Longwood, Hampden-Sydney College and Southside Virginia Community College are located in the area. The Farmville Area has a diversified economy with strong manufacturing, trade, service, and agricultural sectors. Manufacturing activity centers around natural resources, textiles, and a variety of industrial and consumer goods. The Town of Farmville is also home to the annual Heart of Virginia Festival (first Saturday in May) and many historical sites, including Appomattox Courthouse and Sailors Creek Battlefield. These points of interest make the Farmville Area a very attractive place to be. Located in and near town are churches, hotels, motels, a country club, a municipal airport, and a community hospital. Many additional points of interest are within a short distance of the Farmville area. COMMOnWEAlTH OF VIRGInIA The Commonwealth of Virginia is one of the original 13 colonies. Named for the Virgin Queen, Elizabeth I of England, Virginia was England’s first successful overseas colony and the site of the first permanent English settlement in America. West Virginia was part of Virginia until 1863. Virginia’s rich political heritage helped shape the democratic principles on which the United States was founded. Virginia played an important role in the American Revolution (1775-1783), and it entered the Union as the 10th of the original 13 states on June 25, 1788. During the American Civil War (1861-1865) the state’s capital, Richmond, was also capital of the Confederacy. The state has long been nicknamed Old Dominion. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe, all Virginians, were founding fathers of the United States and were among the first five U.S. presidents. Virginia is also the birthplace of U.S. presidents William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, Zachary Taylor, and Woodrow Wilson. Virginia is the 35th largest state in the United States, bounded on the east by the Atlantic Ocean, on the north and east by Maryland and the
District of Columbia, on the west by West Virginia and Kentucky, and on the south by Tennessee and North Carolina. According to the 2010 national census, Virginia’s population was 8,001,024, ranking it 12th among the states. Virginia Beach (435,619) is one of the most popular resort destinations on the East Coast, as well as Virginia’s largest city. Richmond (192,913) is the state capital and a center of banking and insurance, and of both retail and wholesale trade. The Naval Base at Norfolk (229,112) and the Naval Shipyard at Portsmouth (101,377) employ thousands of civilians and military personnel. Hampton (145,017) is important for its aviation activities such as Langley Air Force Base and a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) facility. In Newport News (178,281) is a shipyard that builds naval ships, including aircraft carriers. Alexandria (136,974) is part of the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. Lynchburg (67,720) is the site of light industries. Roanoke (91,552) is the largest city in western Virginia. Civilian and military employment, mostly with the federal government, is an essential part of the Virginia economy. The Pentagon, which houses the Department of Defense, is located in Virginia and is the leading federal employer in the northern part of the state. There are also important military bases in Virginia, particularly the massive complex of army, navy, and air force bases in the vicinity of Norfolk. Average January temperatures range from less than 32°F in the west to more than 42°F in southeastern Virginia. Average July temperatures range from more than 78°F in the southeast to less than 68°F in the western mountains. Total precipitation ranges from about 35 to more than 50 inches. Snowfalls are moderate, except in the mountain regions. Besides Virginia, three other states - Kentucky, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania - use the term commonwealth as part of their official names. The delegates to the convention in Williamsburg, when the first Constitution of Virginia was adopted on June 29, 1776, used commonwealth as the name for the new form of government. It is very likely they had in mind the Puritans’ rebellion against the Crown in England more than 100 years earlier. Pennsylvania and Massachusetts also chose to be called commonwealths after independence from Great Britain. The other 10 former colonies took the name “state,” the term used in the Declaration of Independence. Kentucky was once part of Virginia. When Kentuckians joined the Union as the 15th state in 1792, it also kept the name commonwealth.

UnIVERSITy PRESIDEnT / ExECUTIVE STEERInG COUnCIl W. TAylOR REVElEy IV W. Taylor Reveley IV is the 26th president of Longwood University. His term began June 1, 2013.
Founded in 1839 and located in Farmville, Va., Longwood University is among the hundred oldest colleges and universities in America, and is Virginia’s third-oldest public university, after the College of William & Mary and the University of Virginia. It is a liberal arts university dedicated to the development of citizen leaders who are prepared to make positive contributions to the common good of society, and today has more than 4,800 undergraduate and graduate students. Longwood is organized into five colleges: the Cook-Cole College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Business and Economics, the College of Education and Human Services, the Cormier Honors College, and the College of Graduate and Professional Studies. Longwood’s athletic teams compete at the NCAA Division I level, and the university is a member of the Big South Conference. Reveley previously served as the managing director of the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, a nonpartisan institute focused on the U.S. presidency, policy and political history. Through strategic focus during Reveley’s tenure, the Miller Center became a key element of U.Va.’s academic work and public engagement and an increasingly prominent institution nationwide. The Miller Center’s faculty teaches almost 1,000 U.Va. students annually and includes a Pulitzer Prize winner and two winners of the Bancroft Prize, the most distinguished award in the field of U.S. history. Supported by an endowment of $65 million, the Miller Center has conducted the official oral history of each U.S. presidential administration over the past four decades and also engaged in significant broadcast partnerships with MacNeil/Lehrer Productions and ABC News. Gerald L. Baliles, former governor of Virginia, is the director and CEO of the Miller Center, which recently completed a $45 million comprehensive capital campaign. Prior to his tenure as managing director of the Miller Center, Reveley served as the coordinating attorney for its National War Powers Commission, co-chaired by U.S. Secretaries of State James Baker and Warren Christopher. Reveley has likewise served as a member of the Executive Committee of the Princeton University Alumni Council. Reveley’s father, W. Taylor Reveley III, is the president of the College of William & Mary. His grandfather, W. Taylor Reveley II, served as the president of Hampden-Sydney College from 1963 to 1977.
